running mate, paul ryan. but i think -- what i think a lot of people want to know if we're going to hear from governor romney today. oftentimes we have a stakeout, microphone or camera position outside the white house. is that the case today? i know we can't get into that private dining room. what about outside after the governor leaves? >> reporter: we have cameras everywhere, to not only get a shot of the governor going in, but also if he wants to say something, we'll be there, as well. as you pointed out, my colleague, jim acosta, said about a half hour ago, according to a republican source, governor romney was meeting with representative ryan at a hotel here in it d.c. and so it's unclear. we have located where that hotel is, and if we'll be staking that out as well. but we just want to be able to hear a little bit about what is in governor romney's head, what is he thinking, what does he hope to accomplish by this meeting? at this point, we're watching and waiting, but so far, nothing. >> we've got to make sure that microphone and the hot mic position is in on position. dan lothian,

whatsoever, and when paul ryan and others have put forward our plans, they've pilied them for it. i'm glad president obama's meeting with simon. i'd love for him to meet with john john boehner. [laughter] megyn: simon's got a lot of good ideas. were you in that meeting with the unions and the progressive groups that the president had -- >> no. i was in a different meeting. they can't meet with all at the same time. megyn: were you in the meeting that the progressive groups emerged from feeling, quote, very happy where they felt that the white house with us not going -- was not going to offer any spending cuts? they felt those programs were all going to be protected? >> no, no, i don't think that's what was said after that meeting. i think what the democrats want is balance. i think they're willing to give. i mean, in the president's budget now is $300 billion of additional cuts in medicare, and this is why what marc's saying is just not true. the democrats have shown a willingness to give on all four of the places we think we need to give. it's been the republicans who have been intransige
mate as well, congressman paul ryan. that happened earlier. those are the headlines right now here in the fox newsroom. back to tracy. tracy: jamie colby, thank you very much. >> reporter: you're welcome. tracy: oil poised to snap a three legs losing streak amid growing hopes that congress and the president can reach an agreement. maybe they know something we don't and potentially avoid the fiscal cliff. sandra smith has details in today's trade. they will think they will get it done, what? >> that's correct. the markets can tell us a lot of things and the markets are telling us maybe a deal will get done. look at the crude oil market up 2%. hear is the weekly chart. going back to the win beginning of the week it was down, down. we had consecutive daily drops in oil. we reached this low in yesterday's trading session and now we have a bid in the oil market. so there is some anticipation we'll get some sort of resolution by year's end. a nice hefty boost by a couple bucks today. whether or not that continues will be up for grabs. we're certainly seeing traders stepping in here on th
. stuart: there is no prayer of that. the details of paul ryan's plan have something to the degree. and during the debate, they had a lot on it, a lot of the concessions. >> you have to grandfather the middle class at a minimum. you don't need it on a go forward basis, the reason to have more mortgage interest deduction to start with is the interest rates in this country, and -- stuart: i agree with you. the grandfather concept, and have a mortgage. and can i suddenly not deduct the mortgage i had 25 years? >> a horrible thing for you. stuart: are we agreed on this? [talking over each other] charles: something is going to happen that people don't like. will be very unpopular with a bunch of people. they will pay higher taxes. stuart: treasury secretary tim geithner, on capitol hill, the fiscal cliff. isn't this what president obama should be doing? going on a pant decamping trail, and the tax the rich plan. he won the election. who else does he need to convince? doug shoen still a democrat. why is this, why is tim geithner talking to congressional leaders, politicians? >> we are no
. >> reporter: earlier in the day the former gop nominee met with his former running mate paul ryan where an aide to the congressman said he had a constructive and positive conversation with mitt romney this morning. in addition to sharing updates from their families and reflections from the campaign, their forward looking conversation focused on resolving the critical fiscal and economic challenges ahead. translation, fiscal cliff. it's a challenge romney might have faced had he won. but as one of his strategists said on cbs, mistakes were made. >> i think we should have done a better job reaching out to women voters, the governor has a great record on women's issues. we should have done a better job articulating that record. and we should have done a better job reaching out to hispanic voters. >> reporter: as workers were busy building the seating used in president obama's next inaugur inaugural, romney slipped out a side entrance of the white house leaving the capital's focus squarely on the man who won. as for that incident that occurred as romney arrived at the white house, the secre
enough, he's going to meet with paul ryan. where that goes is also anybody's guess, but before that meeting, the speaker's office telling us they accepted the meeting only on the condition that the white house bring up some specific spending cuts and get serious about spending, i talked to senator lindsay gram, a republican, just before geithner walked into the building. he said he doesn't think there's that much asphalt on the road for reins to talk about tax increases at this point, he want f s to see some specific offers from the democrats. >> we'll be coming back to you not too long from now. >>> now to a big earnings mover in the luxury retail sales. brian, i read through your note that you issued this morning. you said still weak but not dismal. same store sales up 1%. inventories climbed 11%. this is not dismal, they are cutting the third year. >> as i look through the results today and there's no question on the face of them, they look really bad. tiffany did earnings per share of 45 cents, we were at 62 cents, i think the street was at 63. the crux of that miss was gro
to take an honest look at medicare. i happen to believe the paul ryan approach was not the right approach, to say the least. i thought that his idea of premium support capping the amount was put into it would've raised the cost of medicare insurance on many seniors, and i think it was unworkable and certainly didn't support it. some have suggested raising the medicare retirement age, eligibility age i should say. and i've trouble with that. my trouble is this, in my family i had an older brother passed away a few years ago. when he retired, he had health insurance from his employer in california, and then he had a massive heart attack and surgery, and they canceled his insurance. my very conservative republican brother who had no use for social programs started counting the days until he was eligible for medicare. that was the only place he could turn. what was at stake were all of the savings he put together for his family. so we would talk on if anybody doesn't talk about a later eligibility age for medicare, what i want to hear is the assurance and guarantee that people like my brother
between 10 and 20 years from now. democrats will say that's the paul ryan precedent, that in his medicare plan, the vast majority of all changes take place a decade from now. so republicans are going to have to swallow a tax increase today for medicare cuts on a faraway tomorrow. and as far as what those tax cuts look like, there's going to be a tax rate increase, certainly in the short term. and if you just look at the -- there's an article you can link to our piece today, just look at the top 20 loopholes in deductions. and it shows that it's virtually impossible to close or change any of the most expensive ones. so you're probably going to end up with some kind of total cap on deductions or some sort of alternative minimum tax rate for rich people. so you can jack up the amount of revenue that you're getting for people making over $250,000 or $500,000, whatever the end number is. but again, if you listen to the rhetoric on camera, it sounds like well, there's no way there will be a deal. if you talk to people who have been in the room, they say calm down. it's going to be ugly, but we
. >> ryan, are we hearing any house republicans saying no way, we should not compromise? >> sure, and rand paul on the senate side who speaks for a lot of tea partiers said that today. said we shouldn't compromise. shouldn't even compromise on deductions. i thought your kremlin analogy was pitch perfect. there's a lot more going on and the last couple of years, there's been a ton of pressure from rank and file republicans on leadership saying look, we're getting killed at home over these millionaire tax cuts. why don't we just take what charles schumer offered, extend it for everybody but a million above and get this off the table and move on. leadership was able to unify their conference the last two years around no tax cuts for anybody at any time, but now that tom cole is out now, the situation has changed a little bit, i think you're going see a lot of that pressure, which was mostly unreported start to bubble up a lot more. >> tom cole was asked tonight on cnn about defying grover norquist and the pledge. >> i admire grover norquist. i think he's done a lot of good. i signed that pled
happened. i'll pour more salt in the wound. paul ryan said the reason we won is because we did tpwhell you shallen areas. we won his hometown by 24 points and he lost it by ten and it's not an you shallen area. so it's disturbing within eighty days there is that think about that gift to young people, latinos. gifts of contraception to women. so if that's your diagnosis, and it actually has eerie echoes of the 47%. so to the think of soul searching. governor romney is going off the stage. others who are going to be facing voters in 2014 and 2016 are going to be most prominent in deciding a direction. i think that would be concerning to anybody in the republican party is thinking how do we get more square with the country as it exists today. >> i think technology played an interesting role in both of those moments and perhaps others in the campaign. i'd love to hear you talk about this for a moment. for example, in a previous era the 47% tape might never have been made or might have only been an audio taped and leaked to the "new york times" or "washington post" or some other newspaper and e
